Asked why he blew off a “Family Guy” script meeting, Seth MacFarlane (couldn’t he behave a bit better, at least temporarily, while a reporter was tailing him?) first told The New Yorker it was “because I don’t get vacations” (I wonder if the legendary fact-checking squad assessed that fact) and once worked for “fifteen months, seven days a week” (ditto). Then he changed his story:
“It’s a regular occurrence for me to step outside my daily activities and contemplate things like the flow of time. We perceive it as moving from one direction to another, but who’s to say it doesn’t move in the other direction?”
Pretty deep for a guy who makes his living off ass jokes. But how professional should we expect the guy to be? He only gets $38 million a year. For $39 million, maybe he’d put some effort into his job.
This would be perfect for Private Eye’s “Luvvies” column on the musings of showbiz folk.
